Tip #1: Commit to becoming the best in your field. Readers can tell who’s an expert and who isn’t and other popular bloggers will link to the best content.
Tip #2: Build an audience that will get you natural links. Don’t just focus on link building only. Most popular bloggers get links without even trying because they have a big following that links to them naturally.
Tip #3: Create a product, service or content worth linking to. This part is hard to do, but if you spend time on that, then getting links and traffic will be a lot easier.
